of people are saying doing that at the u.n. was not part of the prime minister. megyn: here at home, israeli anxiety over their the nuclear program is becoming an election issue. many americans watching nervously as our closest ally faces the possibility of a hostile enemy and their doomsday weapon. the big question is did prime minister netanyahu effect the election with that speech yesterday. alan colmes as host of his show and chris plante is host of his show as well. do you think that benjamin netanyahu is trying to interfere with the election? >> it certainly seems like it, although i thought he moderated his comment yesterday. i very much appreciate the position of the president, as is everyone in the country. he also made it clear that the redline, if there was to be one, which he then drew, would be well into 2013 pass the presidential election. seemed to me that he kind of backed off his u.n. speech yesterday. on the other hand, he is talking not just to president obama, but as i understand it today, mitt romney, which is highly unusual, and he has made it very clear that mitt romne
news alert, moments ago the state department can defended u.n. ambassador susan rice after new calls went out this weekend demanding her resignation. congressional critics are angry that ms. rice was talking to the media some four days after a terror attack killed four americans in libya and telling reporters across this nation that it was a spontaneous protest that was behind the attack when fox news and now other news outlets have reported that the white house knew within 24 hours that this was a terror attack and not some spontaneous event. the administration is maintaining that they gave us the information as it evolved and as it came to be known by them. there is, at a minimum, some question about that. the white house is also facing tough new questions about the president's decision to attend a campaign event in vegas within 24 hours of the attack. white house senior adviser david plouffe -- keep in mind, this is the first time they've put the senior advisers out there since all this happened -- but they were on the sunday shows this weekend, and mr. plouffe was challenged outr
does a u.n. ambassador get sent out by the administration? >> she shouldn't have been. if, in fact, and i suspect the administration knew that susan rice was going to go out there and talk to the media on that sunday, that's preplanned, and there was lots of communication with her before she went out, they should have told her what they expected her to say sw what they anticipated the questions to be and potential answers. tend not allow her or encourage her to answer anything that she knows not true. so they should have told her the truth as they knew it. it's one thing to say we don't know yet. she offered a definitive answer to a question, and she said it was not a terrorist attack when, in fact, it was as a result of this movie trailer and the mob scene. if she knew that that was not the truth, she shouldn't have indicated that it was, um, and i can't imagine that she would have been well briefed before she went out on that talk show. megyn: yeah. as far as i can see, she never actually said it wasn't terror, but she said it was not preplanned -- >> correct. she did not say it
a bomb. alisyn: well israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu drew a literal hard line at his u.n. speech last week insisting on limits to iran's controversial nuclear program. just earlier today iran responded calling this display childish and primitive and vowing to push ahead. after spending some time with some high-ranking israeli officials in assessing the security situation across the middle east says benjamin netanyahu isn't the only one expressing brave concerns. pete hoekstra is a former republican congressman out of michigan and a former chairman of the house permanent collect committee on intelligence and a candidate for u.s. senate. thank you so much for being here. >> good to be with you. alisyn: you just returned from the middle east. as you said you had many high-level meetings with government officials. what did they tell you? >> i think what they are telling is very, very clear. i served on the joint inquiry that looked at intelligence failures after 9/11. i led the conference committee that rewrote our intelligence laws in 2004 to make sure that, you know, in the
